Critic Reviews for The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (25) | Rotten (3)

With a cheeky attitude and a live-and-let-live message, the Topps are irresistible ambassadors for New Zealand, where a daft sense of humor appears to be a key natural resource.

Minneapolis Star Tribune
Top Critic

A fond, uncomplicated love letter to two irrepressible good-time Charlottes.

Full Review… | June 30, 2011
Boston Globe
Top Critic

Sometimes corny, often funny and just as often touching, their act has been wowing Kiwis for decades.

Full Review… | May 19, 2011
San Francisco Chronicle
Top Critic

One secret to the Topps' widespread acceptance is in plain sight: their remarkably old-fashioned act.

Full Review… | May 13, 2011
Top Critic

They've been performing for 30 years and it's safe to say that if they had any appeal here, you would have heard of them by now.

Full Review… | May 13, 2011
New York Post
Top Critic

Merging old-fashioned comedy routines with up-to-the-minute politics - all of it enabled by fun-loving personalities and a gift for rousing original songs - the ladies emit a genuine warmth that reels audiences in.

New York Times
Top Critic

These butch lesbian sibling farmers, who have a comedy singing act (acoustic country songs), are shown fighting for gay rights and surviving cancer over the decades, and they are endearing in their suits and fake moustaches.

Full Review… | October 31, 2012

Pooley could have been more probing in her interviews with the twins and their supporters. But the fact of the duo's success is so astounding you're gripped all the same.

This is London

The more you learn about the twins the more of a fan you are likely to become and The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls is the very essence of a crowd-pleaser.

Full Review… | February 16, 2012
Daily Express

Jools and Linda left my giggle chain unyanked and their backstory, for all its nuance and aspects of tragedy, failed to stir my soul.

Full Review… | February 16, 2012

Warm and charming, if hardly essential.

Full Review… | February 15, 2012
Little White Lies

I cannot imagine anyone who would not like the Topp twins.

Full Review… | July 15, 2011
St. Paul Pioneer Press

Pooley's approach is a bit paint-by-numbers, but her film is upbeat without being calculatedly feel-good.

Full Review… | June 29, 2011
Boston Phoenix

The talent, the humor and the dedication of these amazing sisters is a gift to the world.

Full Review… | June 23, 2011
Reeling Reviews

Take the Indigo Girls and spice them up with some k.d. lang, Dame Edna, Minnie Pearl, the AbFabers, Monty Python and Rodney Dangerfield then apply kiwi accents and you might begin to get an idea of what the Topp Twins are like.

Full Review… | June 20, 2011
Reeling Reviews

A film that is shot straightforwardly -- to the point of being visually unimaginative -- but that benefits enormously from the overflowing charisma of its subjects.

Full Review… | June 1, 2011

Although claims of their having "an extraordinary effect on people, from all walks of life" may be exaggerated, the world needs to hear these two.

Full Review… | May 27, 2011
Monsters and Critics

I dare you to leave without the title song firmly stuck in your head.

Full Review… | May 26, 2011
New York Press

Given most people's unfamiliarity with New Zealand idiosyncrasies and politics, much gets lost in translation here.

Full Review… | May 21, 2011
Slant Magazine

Terrifically entertaining documentary about New Zealand's lesbian Topp Twins and their extraordinary career is a heart-warming eye-opener that provides insights into so much more than the sexual orientation of its two remarkable subjects.

Full Review… | May 13, 2011
Film Journal International

The Topp Twins' vibrantly innovative music and indefatigable personalities have a universal charm.
